St4ack Usurps PalmDesert For Highest Steam Level

How St4ack managed to top reigning Steam level champion PalmDesert.

PalmDesert became the first person to surpass rank 1,000 on Steam, and currently rocks the impressive Steam level of 1,111. Owning a staggering 5,033 games and 3,337 DLCs, PalmDesert has comfortably rested at the top of the Steam rankings from 2013 onward.

There are a variety of ways to increase your Steam level from owning games, participating in Steam events, to crafting badges out of trading cards from various Steam games. Increasing your Steam level rewards you with things like increased friend slots, and showcases for everything from items, favorite games, screenshots, and more. 

However, another user had their eye on the top Steam level ranking and figured out a way to knock PalmDesert off the top of the Steam leaderboard after three years. With a current Steam level of 1,113, user St4ck utilized tactics such as purchasing Steam’s Summer sale cards every day after the 1st day of release, and preparing over 7,000 trading card complete sets from various different games in order to earn bonus Summer sale cards. In the end, St4ck spent well over $13,000 dollars to earn themselves Steam’s coveted top spot.
